Sitting at 2-3.... pressure's on to win out and get us above .500. So far the only two wins are ASU over Navy and Arizona over Nevade (thrilling game, but a 1 point victory). Fight On and BEAT the Yellow Jackets!

Join the fight for YOUR liberty!
Oregon State should have won that game if not for dumb playcalling by Riley in the second hald. The Beavers were running on Texas defense all over the place and then he sticks with Vaz and throws it giving the Long Horns a chance. I see Oregon, Stanford and USC winning.
You know, I realized that after I posted. Thanks will edit the OP!
I don't understand why he stuck with Vaz, but apparently he abandoned the run when Storm Woods got hurt? Even before that I saw some lame passing plays and asked 'don't they have any running backs?' Weird decisions, for sure. I thought Mannion played well this year except for the game coming back from injury when he was rusty.
So far not good for the conf trying to get rid of the perception of weakness.
It's not a perception, it's a fact the conference is weak.
The matchups looked pretty good at the start, but you never know how teams are going to come out in the bowl game. It for the most part is a meaningless exhibition, played in a neutral site where a lot of times the stands are 1/4 empty.
What are you saying, Sir? The Hyundai Sun Bowl won't be SRO?!?
With an 11:00 AM (PT) kick-off on New Years Eve day, the SRO will be at the Costco Liquor store and Trader Joe's where everyone will stop on the way home to load up on booze for the midnight party.
As long as Trader Joe's is a part of it, i'm in!
I just don't think many casual fans in LA or Atlanta are thinking they need to spend New Years in El Paso to watch a bowl game. Between a 7-5 and 6-7 team.
I was teasing, sir. I fully expect there to be more people on the field than in the stands today.
I always wondered why a place like El Paso gets a game? Even if you live in the upper midwest or northeast, you aren't leaving there in the winter.
It seems weird that the LA market hosts as many bowl games as El Paso.
LA could stand a few more bowl games, but where to play them? At the Coli? That's a lot of seats to sell for a non-BCS game.
Angel Stadium, Dodger Stadium, Home Depot Center, Pasadena City College?
All viable I suppose. I do not like football games in baseball stadiums personally, but that's just me.
I don't like it either, but I would rather play in a baseball stadium in LA, than a football stadium in El Paso. Home Depot Center seems like the most obvious.
